Purpose: Distribution of paresthesia throughout the skin area without median nerve innervation is frequently seen in carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS). However, its pathophysiologic mechanisms are still unclear. We aimed to research whether a dysfunction in sensory fibers of the ulnar nerve (UN) was present or not in hands with CTS.
